Finished Objects Review 2012-2015
On Friday, the building my shop was in, had rock walls that took a long time to warm up... so it was cold in the building but warm enough outside to not need my winter shawl. I left it in my chair in my 'little store' when I went to the chow line at lunch.
When I brought my lunch back to my spot, a lady was trying on my winter shawl.
'How much is this shawl?'
'Whoa, wait! That's my winter shawl. I can't sell it.'
'Oh, I want one just like it! It's so warm and soft.'
Well, it took me two years to complete that shawl... not because the stitching was that difficult, but because I would forget to work on it... or the stress of trying to make sure I'm paying attention to the stitches and the patterns... would wipe me out after a couple of hours.
The new shawl is on the left and mine is on the right. Both are made with 6 skeins of Red Heart Amore in a cream color.
